This page is to announce the information related to Japanese Wikipedia or all Wikimedia projects, such as new MediaWiki tool. You can also use this page to call for the participation in international contests among the multiple projects, proposals on Meta-Wiki, and so on.
Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.
In its first year (2020), 36 Wikimedia communities in 27 countries joined the campaign. Events relating to the campaign included training organized by at least 18 Wikimedia communities in 14 countries.
The campaign resulted in the addition of media files (photos, audios and videos) to more than 90,000 Wikipedia articles in 272 languages.
Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) offers an ideal task for recruiting and guiding new editors through the steps of adding content to existing pages. Besides individual participation, the WPWP campaign can be used by user groups and chapters to organize editing workshops and edit-a-thons.
The organizing team is looking for a contact person to coordinate WPWP participation at the Wikimedia user group or chapter level (geographically or thematically) or for a language WP. We’d be glad for you to reply to this message, or sign up directly at WPWP Participating Communities.
A screenshot of "add a link" feature in development in beta.
"Add a link" is now being tested in production and is nearing release on our four pilot wikis (Arabic, Czech, Vietnamese, and Bengali Wikipedias). We'll be doing final tests this week and next week, and then plan to deploy to the four wikis either during May 24 week, or May 31 week.After two weeks, we will analyze the initial data to identify any problems or trends.We expect that this feature will engage new kinds of newcomers in easy and successful edits.If things are going well after four weeks, we'll progressively deploy it to the wikis with Growth features.
We are currently working on a Mentor dashboard.This special page aims to help mentors be more proactive and be more successful at their role.The first iteration will include a table that shows an overview of the mentors current mentees, a module with their own settings, and a module that will allow them to store their best replies to their mentees questions.
Community configuration editing form under development
We are working on project to allow communities to manage the configuration of the Growth features on their own.In the past, communities have needed to work directly with the Growth team to set up and alter the features.We plan to put this capability in the hands of administrators, through an easy-to-use form, so that the features can be easily tailored to fit the needs of each community.While we developed it initially for Growth features, we think this approach could have uses in other features as well.We'll be trying this on our pilot wikis in the coming weeks, and then we'll bring it to all Growth wikis soon after.We hope you check out the project page and add any of your thoughts to the talk page.
Growth features are now available on 35 wikis. Here is the list of the most recent ones: ルーマニア語版ウィキペディア, デンマーク語版ウィキペディア, タイ語版ウィキペディア, インドネシア語版ウィキペディア, クロアチア語版ウィキペディア, アルバニア語版ウィキペディア, エスペラント語版ウィキペディア, ヒンディー語版ウィキペディア, ノルウェー語(ブークモール)版ウィキペディア, 日本語版ウィキペディア, テルグ語版ウィキペディア, スペイン語版ウィキペディア, シンプル英語版ウィキペディア, マレー語版ウィキペディア, タミル語版ウィキペディア, ギリシャ語版ウィキペディア, カタロニア語版ウィキペディア.
A new group of Wikipedias has been defined for the deployment of Growth features. Please contact us if you have questions about the deployment process, or if your community likes to get the features in advance.

Event Program - Individuals or a group of individuals can submit their session proposals to be a part of the program. There will be translation support for sessions provided in a number of languages. See more information here.
Please note that the deadline for submission is 18th June 2021.
Announcements- To keep up to date with the developments around Wikimania, the COT sends out weekly updates. You can view them in the Announcement section here.
Office Hour - If you are left with questions, the COT will be hosting some office hours (in multiple languages), in multiple time-zones, to answer any programming questions that you might have. Details can be found here.
